I keep hoping I'll wake up.

The frontrunners for the 2012 Republican nomination are (1) a thrice-married lobbyist most recently on retainer for Fannie Mae, and (2) a one-term governor of Massachusetts who ran to the left of Ted Kennedy.

I have that straight, right?

I miss the smoke-filled rooms and surprise compromise candidates.

  1. Yup, you have it straight. To me, the *really* sad thing here is that the Democrats aren't going to run anybody better. As regrettable as the Republican frontrunners are, neither of them has an ideological commitment to slaughtering unborn kids as a matter of public policy. (Romney might support it if the polls were right, but even that's hardly an ideological commitment.)
